Make/Know/See/Believe: A Conversation with Mark Shapiro and Sam Taylor

February 13 @ 10:00 AM

Make/Know/See/Believe is a 2-day workshop with Mark Shapiro and Sam Taylor. Mark and Sam will bring everything they do in their studios to this dynamic collaborative experience. We will throw, carve, alter, construct, decorate, and everything in between with an eye to bouncing all of our individual approaches off one another, creating an environment that values exploration. We are seeking the next pot and the next question. The event will include artists demonstrations and discussions on Saturday, and hands-on exploration of those experiences on Sunday.

Saturday, February 12: A Conversation Through Making
Mark and Sam will share their many years of making and decorating pottery and on and off the pottery wheel in a fun and interactive day. All are welcome to attend this event and experience the unique approaches of these two artists and the intersections of their process.

Sunday, February 13: Hands-on Workshop: The Conversation Expands
An interactive studio day with Mark and Sam. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the techniques discussed on Saturday with input and assistance from the Artists. This will be a hands-on event using The Umbrella Ceramics Studio facilities. All levels welcome; limited to 12 students; Saturday attendance required.
